. seemed that peres and netanyahu gave the president a pretty warm welcome. peres called obama a great president and world leader. i think they spent like 15 or 20 minutes together and there he's signing the welcome guest book. did you read anything into what you heard, ambassador ginsburg so far today or see anything that you think is notable at this point? >> well, two things. first of all, chris, the fact is that the president made it very clear from the time that he landed at the airport that he was going to talk directly to the israeli people to try to reassure them that this alliance between the united states and israel is unshakable. and there's a lot of suspicion among israelis over the president's intentions given the turmoil in the region. number two, the president made it very clear that he also believes that israel's security is dependent on reaching the peace with the palestinians. that's why he used the euphemism that he looks for a peace in the holy land. and so there's no doubt that with respect to the messages that he sent on the ground, chris, it was, one, i have your

to the two presidents as they speak. >> president obama, it is a great privilege for me and for the people of israel to host you here in jerusalem. it was a real pleasure to sit with a true friend, very knowledgeable and see we can agree and discuss issues openly and freely. after the meeting we just had i have more confidence that your vision can be transform the middle east. your vision is achievable. you arrive here already with an impressive record of answering our needs particularly an unforgetably in the domain of security. i want to thank you personally, dear friend, for the long days and for many long sleepless nights which you spend caring for our country and for our future. we live in an age that is both global and domestic inseparately. interest may divide people. vision may unite them. there is a common vision uniting us to confront the dangers, to bring peace closer as soon as possible. the greatest danger is, is a nuclear iran so you so you do. we trust your policy which calls to first by non-military to, by non-military means with a clear statement that both other options re
achieve that reality much sooner . you're really saying the president obama's wasted the last four years? >> you betty has. there have been some things they have done ight. the cyber attacks have been great, but the real problem is for the last hundred years the world has gone to war over access to energy. we have now been given the energy of a dream of a lifetime. we have energy independence within our grasp. oil, natural gas. then what happens? we don't need to be in the middle of every civil war because they have their own energy. lou: we have not address the energy -- issue central to our foreign policy go about -- over last two decades, and it's about damn time our leaders started thinking about them. thank you both. we appreciate very much. thank you. much more on the president's day in israel and the tensions that are rising in the middle east. we will have much more throughout this broadcast. the president's gun-control agenda is on life support. we'll take a look at the real reason for its demise in tonight's "chalk talk". staying the course. fed chair ben bernanke says easing
what has been a completely dormant peace process for much of obama's first term. but one must make the point here that while this is about repairing the relationship, the issue of the peace process will be discussed but not in as great a detail, certainly on a former general basis. but there will be a further meeting over the weekend with the u.s. secretary of state john kerry returns. he will meet with prime minister netanyahu saturday night and more substantive issues about the peace process may emerge in that particular meeting. but for the next two days, the talks between obama and the 10 yahoo will center on what are seen as shared fears, shared interest -- talk between obama fearstanyahu, on shared -- iran developing a nuclear weapon and a situation in syria which is seen very much as a threat to stability. these will be the issues that will dominate the discussion. is a the studio with me senior political analyst. mike was sending the main ground that these two leaders want to syria.ill be iran and there is a difference in opinion as to how imminent a threat iran and its nuc
'll tell you what i saw was a great relationship between our two countries, the bonds between america and israel go way beyond president obama and prime minister netanyahu. started long before and will continue long after. but the president has been very warm towards the israeli people and we certainly appreciate it. >> now the president of the united states and the prime minister did not really come off fully on the same page on iran. just one way of putting this when the prime minister approached the podium, he talked about iran first. president obama mentioned it last. in fact, prefacing it with the word finally. and here's what they said. >> we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. and there's still time to do so. >> diplomacy and sanctions so far have not stopped iran's nuclear program. >> do you think the u.s. really has, i'll quote president obama, all options on the table when it comes to iran when you hear words like you heard today? >> well, erin, i think we have to look at the facts. and the facts are that words in washington or in jerusalem don't stop centrifuges and even
think the great fear that the u.s. has, that the obama administration has, certainly the israelis have, if these weapons, if these stockpiles got into the wrong hands, they sense right now -- i think they still sense, that the syrian military of president bashar al assad, even though he's desperate and may be on his last leg, he's probably not going to use expensively chemical weapons. but they fear these weapons could get in the hands of terrorists, sympathizers to al qaeda, if it got into the hands of hezbollah which the u.s. and israel see as an extension in effect of iran, there would be deep concern. i don't think the israelis would allow that to happen. i think they would use military force to prevent that if necessary. and i suspect the united states would as well. so this is a really sensitive moment right now in the region. and it underscores how delicate these talks are between the president and the prime minister. >> all right. >> wolf blitzer, thanks so much. >> see you in "the situation room" a little bit later, wolf. >> 4:00 time for that. >> thank you. >> you know, the l

washington is the president of j street, jeremy, great to have you on the program. >> it's great to be here. >> let's talk about things that may get done or see some progress. president obama said to israeli tv last week, we think it could take over a year or so for iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don't want to cut it too close. that would seem to be something worth discussing, the president is setting out a time frame in which iran may have nuclear capabilities. one would think that would go over with the israelis who have long been ringing the alarmt bells. what is your assessment? >> both countries' intelligence is actually pretty much in line. there's not a lot of disagreement around where the iranian program is at. i think the question that has come up is what's the best strategy, what's the best timeline for implementing that strategy for preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. i think it's a good opportunity for the president and the prime minister to make sure they touch base, are on the same page, sanctions and diplomacy are the president's chosen
" begins right now. >>> our team this morning is katherine rossman and chris, great to see you here. >> let's start with president obama at the start of a historic middle east visit. there's a new sense of urgency because there are mounting concerns that the syrian government may be using chemical weapons on its own people. listen to congressman mike rogers. this is in the situation roof last night with wolf blitzer. >> i have a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used. we need that final verification. we need to step up in the world community to prevent a humanitarian disaster. >> let's bring in our john king right now, chief national correspondent traveling with the president. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning. syria issue, the iran issue, big concerns for the president. odd for a u.s. president to be in israel while on the issue list will be down a bit in part because of what's happening in syria. syria neighbors israel and much of the intelligence the u.s. has been getting comes from the israeli government. it's the president's first overseas trip in the s
will they last? >> for as long as it takes. we'll be here until we get some agreement. >> great work by steve. it's not easy. you can hear more from that interview in we speak with steve coming up in the program. in the meantime, president obama is expected to arrive in israel later today to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on a broad range of security issues. it's the first time he's visited the country as president and only the second time he's been to the middle east since taking office. we are joined now from jerusalem. what's the mood there ahead of this visit? >> hi there, kelly. both israelis and palestinians aren't expecting much from president obama's visit. the obama administration made it clear that it's a listening tour and he'll speak to israeli and palestinian officials to get the lay of the land of where they see the future of the region but that being said, secretary of state john kerry is also here at the moment in jerusalem. he will be making these meetings and these rounds as well. he'll stay in the region after president obama leaves. he'll come back to jerusalem, s
'll sign a guest book and plant a tree, and then president obama will deliver statements. we'll bring you that live when it happens. we always like to see an american president plant a tree. great tradition abroad. >>> let's bring back our gaggle, lieutenant governor sheila simon and john ward. and we want to talk about somebody else in the governor's ranks and that's charlie crist who is going to be running for governor, it seems, in florida. poll numbers show he runs pretty well against governor scott who has been under water recently. and i've got to ask you, lieutenant governor simon, do you welcome charlie crist back or into the party as a full-on democrat? >> i think you have to, yeah. yeah, thanks for seeing the light. join us. we're a good bunch. >> easy enough. pretty amazing that charlie crist who some folks thought could be the gop nominee in 2008 a while back now going to be the nominee for governor in florida. >> it's amazing. his numbers, i think he's polling at about 50% right now, it's one of those things where you say who would've thunk it. and this is great for the party
around the globe. a packed agenda for president obama today as he arrived in israel for his official visit as commander in chief. landing in tel aviv, the president was met with great fanfare and an impressive welcoming ceremony. from there, he headed to jerusalem to head -- to meet with the israeli president. event shortly after concluded talks with prime minister benjamin netanyahu, which focused on the iranian nuclear program.
a great deal on its side, including unwavering support of the united states. we have your back. >> we have your back. doesn't exactly fit the republican's effort to use obama's diplomacy as a battery ram against him. >> on israel, it's never been worse between the united states and israel. >> you skipped israel but you went to the other nations and, by the way, they noticed that you skipped israel. >> they see president obama and new york city the same day netanyahu does and instead goes on a daily talk show. >> disrespectful of prime minister netanyahu? really? let's hear what that man said today, the prime minister himself. >> i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and appliance between our two countries. it is deeply, deeply appreciated. >> in a visit important to our nation's security, the republican attacks against this president's foreign policy seemed puny, especially when the president and prime minister were actually laughing. >> and i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as your two sons for their

all the ethical issues. and that's why i think it's a great area for debate. >> lisa, thank you for that. >>> president obama's first trip to israel as commander in chief under way. cnn's erin burnett is going "out front" on the story. >> we're going to be talking to the man of the moment as the "jerusalem post" dubbed bennett, when it all came down to it in the israeli government, he is one of the top guys. he'll be our special guest this evening and we're going to talk about a man that mayor bloomberg in new york called ridiculous. he called him ridiculous because this man has dared to defy him on large sugary drinks. that man is howard shultz, the ceo of starbucks. >> thank you. up next, wolf, it's his turn to respond to the ridiculous and a prom date like no other how one hopeful young man got this top model's attention.

(narrator) the calorie-smart nutrition in beneful healthy weight... includes
arm around bebe netanyahu. he can check the box. he has been to israel as president. he got a great photo-op and will get a few more during his trip. this is trip where the symbolism and politics is very different from the private conversations. i think obama brings two very tough, unpalatable messages to the israelis. number one, don't even think about using military force against iran's nuclear weapons program. and number two, you need to make more concessions to the palestinians to try and reach the two-state solution. so i think the private talks are going to be very, very tough. melissa: wow! so, given that, i mean let's move over to syria for a second. one of israel's top officials saying, it is quote, apparently clear the chemical weapons were recently used in syria, but at the same time, the obama administration says, there is no evidence to support that there was a chemical attack. so you're talking about they're at odds on these other issues. they're at odds on syria as well it sounds like? >> i think we don't know enough facts about what happened. the assad regime claimed
you see president obama and prime minister netanyahu making their way to the podium for the joint news conference in jerusalem. it's about 8:30 there. let's take a listen. >> mr. president, barak, it is a great pleasure for me to host you here in jerusalem. you've graciously hosted me many times in washington. so i'm very pleased to have this opportunity to reciprocate. i hope that goodwill and warmth of the people of israel has already made you feel at home. >> very much so. >> we had an opportunity today to begin discussing the wide range of issues that are critical to both our countries. and foremost among these is iran's relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons. mr. president, you have made it clear that you are determined to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. i appreciate your forthright position on this point. i also appreciate that you have noted that you have acted to thwart this threat, both through determined diplomacy, and strong sanctions that are getting stronger yet. notwithstanding our joint efforts and your great success in mobilizing the international community
weaponry is of great concern to both israel and the u.s. they have not been on the same page about when they think iran might acquire that capability. these are not netanyahu and israel and obama here not the best of friends. so anything they can do to kind of ease what has been kind of four years of tension between the two would be good so they get on the same page. egypt, you know, the arab spring and the transition from dictatorship, which might have been a dictatorship, but nonetheless certainly helped in terms of the middle east balance of power because it did have a peace treaty with israel. that hasn't gone so well. we're talking about the war in syria spilling over into israel. there's no shortage of things to talk about. and i think i would also just add that presidents in second terms use a broader palette when they go after issues. they are looking at the history books. every president has tried to do something about middle east peace in particular between israel and the palestinians. i think that clock also ticks for the president. >> and how important is it for the u.s. and
about -- not even trying to do anything about gun safety during the first four years of the obama administration. but at least, after newtown, after newtown, the president i mean, he went after tucson after gabby giffords, gave a great speech. did nothing. after newtown, he went up there, that had -- that shook up the entire nation and the president got his resolve and he came out and he said, you know we've got a lot of things we ought to do in this area of gun safety to protect our children, which is our number 1 responsibility. we have to talk about closing those loopholes and background checks and making sure that every gun purchase is accompanied by criminal background checks. we have to do something about these straw purchases and make that a more serious crime and eliminate them if we can. we have to do something about these high-capacity magazines. we have got to do something about these assault weapons. i mean, so it's not just one measure. it's a panoply, if you will a whole group of measures that should be taken up the president said, by
with leaders while he's here. he's also speaking directly to the israeli people who do not have a great approval rating for him. a recent poll in israel showed only 10% of israelis said they liked president obama. about another 30% said they didn't necessarily like him but they at least respected him. in this speech he is going to give to about 1,000 college students is designed to speak directly to the israeli population to see if he can't convince the israeli population that he's right that america has their back, and perhaps that can get more movement out of prime minister netanyahu if president obama is able to rally support from the israeli people themselves. >>brian: here's the unscripted part. the story yesterday about syria possibly using poisonous gas, poisonous chemicals, gas, on the rebels. they're accusing each other of using this. that now becomes front and center; correct? >> it certainly becomes an issue. this probably shows the relationship we're seeing right now between the united states and israel that is not necessarily while the united states and israel are friends,
and robin, some hard-earned day off. great to have amy and paula. >> thank you very much. >> and guess who else is with us, the high-end designer who dressed everyone from julianne moore and rachel weisz to first lady michelle obama. well, now derek lam is here with a low-cost collection, affordable looks for less. we'll show them to you, can't wait for that. >> can't wait for that. can't wait for this. "millionaire matchmaker," i love this show, by the way, she plays cupid for so many on television, patti stanger is here, and you know what, has she fallen in love herself? this has been a big thing on the show so she's here with the new man in her life for their first interview together only here on "gma," and i think we'll put them to the test -- i don't know if they're expecting that. >> if there's anybody i want interviewing sam, it's patti, so i can only hope, you know -- >> you know we love our competition, and you guys know, a diver back n my college days i was excited to watch "splash" last night. it's abc's newest reality show. it's wet, wild, really fun and today we have, well, th
, and there was a lot of concern of that last year, really aren't great. i think the israelis understand that there's no real end state if they strike. their capacities are limited, the regional complications are immense. what they want to do is, frankly, make this barack obama's problem. and it is a challenge to the united states. we can't afford to see iran with a nuclear weapon for all kinds of reasons. it would be transformative in a negative sense for the region at large. so i think they are going to cooperate on this. obama's tenure, his legacy and his status as a lame duck are going to compete with one another and netanyahu may also be looking at the end of his tenure as a prime minister having served longer than any other prime minister in israel's history, so time is not an ally right now, it's an adversary. and i think it's going to compel both men to try to find a way to work together. >> aaron david miller, thanks so much. we appreciate it. >> thanks, carol. >>> political buzz. a look at the best political topics of the day. 30 seconds on the day. playing with us, jason johnson a politi
process, but if that can get restart and also what is going on in syria. there is great concern right now about iran's nuclear program. the entire region, in fact, seems to be in turmoil throughout north africa, and the middle east. so there is lots going on. this is president obama's first trip to israel as president of the united states, though he did visit as a candidate and earlier as a united states senator. here they come right now. we'll hear from the prime minister first, followed by the president. >> mr. president, barack, it is a great pleasure for me to host you here in jerusalem. you've graciously hosted me many times in washington. so i'm very pleased to have this opportunity to reciprocate. i hope that the goodwill and warmth of the people of israel has already made you feel at home. >> very much so. >> we had an opportunity today to begin discussing the wide range of issues that are critical to both our countries. and foremost among these is iran's relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons. mr. president, you have made it clear that you're determined to prevent iran from develo
'm no expert in that region. but when you watch -- when you watch great powers, the single overriding mistake they make is to think they know more than they know. >> yeah. >> another big story this morning. the nation's debate on gun reform where president obama's initiative to reduce violence in america has been severely weakened. democratic majority leader harry reid announced the most controversial and ambitious part of the president's proposal a ban on assault weapons will not make the final cut when he brings the bill up for a debate. >> but, right now, her amendment using the most optimistic numbers, has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues i talked about and what i'm going try to do. i'm not going to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein, who sponsored the bill, was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, quote, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best, but my best i guess wasn't good enough. you'd thi
